You mean the world to…

… the woman who shares the room with your mother at the retirement home, when you also brought her a bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day.  Maybe her children live too far away and can’t visit, or they did send her a large package of her favorite things – the box was just lost in the mail, in a post office in a different city.  And even sadder, maybe she didn’t have any children at all.  However, the colorful petals that now reflect in the smile of her eyes means that for a moment, she knows that there is someone who cares and thinks of her.

About The Power In You

A soul, like you, that believes in the amazing qualities we share. There are days I grow weary and frazzled from interactions I've had with others. And sure, there are times when I want to curse, yell and shake my fist at people. Let's face it - we are annoying, we get on each others' nerves, we pick, meddle, interfere and say things we later regret. But when we step back and bite our tongue, take a deep, deep breath and react with kindness despite the anger welling up within ... well, it's absolutely amazing what one tiny gesture can do. There is kindness all around us, but most importantly, there is a limitless, infinite amount within us as well.
